A digital signal arrives at the destination unmodified, this is guaranteed by the error correction algorithms used.

Oppo's pre-outs seem like such a good bargain considering it's basically a high end home theater DAC minus an amp section. Any AVR with analog ins can then do what it's supposed to do and nothing...

Yeah, the room it's auditioned in makes a huge difference apparently. I listened to some 683 series 1 and CM9s and I hated the CM9s but loved the 683. I couldn't pull the trigger because I just don't...

I can. I own an Emotiva XPA-3 with various speakers coming and going, and it's currently collecting dust in a box behind my couch. I'm using a 20 watt NAD amp straight from my PC and it sounds just...

Problem with upfiring speakers is that they will blow sound into your upstairs neighbour's living room if you live in an apartment, and are watching a movie with any volume. Also, it prevents you...

I wonder if in my loft with 13 foot high ceilings if it would bother my upstairs neighbour more at the same volume levels, vs having actual height speakers aimed downwards. I rarely if ever get...

If the treble is too bright for you I think that's just a question of EQing it down. I owned the box versions (KL-650) of those THX speakers for a few years (I sold them not because I didn't like...

Great post, I saw a version of the Occulus last year at my job, that was cool but still needed a lot of work. Mostly it was the huge pixels that bugged me, and I did feel some nausea but I'm looking...

Pretty sure that all center channels which are horizontal are sub-optimal. It's just physics. And geometry. Vertically aligned speakers are best, and having all front 3 speakers being identical is...

Very cool. Atmos seems like it could achieve a similar result, building on that. But it would have a very tight listening sweet spot. It would have to be toggle-able to when you have lots of people...

What difference do you believe 96hz provides over 48? Other than a placebo effect, that is.

Atmos seems like an actual, worthwhile improvement. I hope it succeeds. 24/96 is totally pointless...

I'm very curious about this too. I was thinking of pulling the trigger later this summer on a set of 600 series 2 for my home theater, but now I think it's prudent to wait.

Big question is, what...

So it's got a different physical diffusion pattern? I wonder how they're going to sell that, for speakers that also need to sound good on non-Atmos material, such as 99.999999999% of the world's...

I also code videogames (including audio), and think Atmos is probably the best thing to happen to movie audio in a long time, possibly even since the advent of surround sound.

If you open up a 100k speaker the wires inside are probably 1/10th or even 1/100th as thick as the silly wires that people plug into the other end of the terminal.
